March 18, 2019 General Meeting

March 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Jamie Brown on “Digging into Irish Records” – This talk focuses on those researching their Irish Roots. We will first offer the question; How do you know you are Irish? How you can prove your origins and narrow down the possibilities geographically using local or Canadian records. How to use those Canadian records, to give you clues so you can move on to the motherland. Learn about the types of records available in Ireland, both online, in libraries and through other means by using a historical timeline.  Then we will discuss challenges and possible solutions to those elusive Irish Ancestors.


(From 6:00pm – 7:00pm we are open for members and guests who wish to do research and/or participate in our round table sessions.)
